Take The Risk Of Going Back To Square One…

Take The Risk Of Going Back To Square One

There is an undeniable comfort in staying at a familiar place, being with familiar people, and doing familiar stuff. That is because comfort zone is indeed a comfortable place to stay in. But sometimes, comfort becomes the enemy of progress. Your potential is not realized because you refuse to move, because you refuse to take risk. But life is about taking risk, that’s what makes life exciting. Life does not always offer a safety net, for us ordinary people, you have to try to find out. You have to dip your foot into the water to see if the water is cold.

Growth happens when you challenge yourself. For what it’s worth, it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope that you are proud of the life you’re living, and if you realize that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.

Take the jump if it makes your heart race, if it is what you’ve been longing for. Go for it if you think that you will hate yourself for not trying, if it will keep you up at night, regretting, full of unanswered what-ifs. Take the jump if it will make you love yourself more, if doing it makes you proud.

Do not be afraid to challenge yourself even if no one is there to cheer for you, encourage yourself, and believe in yourself – that is enough. And when you take that momentous leap of faith, make the most of it, enjoy, and face every challenge that comes across your way with optimism and determination. Live fearlessly knowing well that you are can, that you are strong enough to withstand uncertainties.

When I am scared to try, I remind myself that this is my only life, and I want to live it. I hate regretting things that I did not do because I was scared. I wanted everything to be certain, it has to be planned. But I realized that I do not have the luxury of having everything planned, I realized that there will be things that I have to try to find out. That realization lead to a mindset that if it matters, if it makes your heart race, if your eyes sparkle talking about it, take the jump.

Do not be afraid to go back to square one. Go for it if it means you’ll be happy. If it matters, it’s worth trying. The keyword is try; see for yourself, get the answers to your what-ifs. Approach this transition with an open mind, that whatever happens, you were brave enough to try and that is enough.
